My card using Carissa's technique coloring velum. First of all my ink mixture didn't mix up very well although I do like how this turned out. There are little spots of the Perfect Pearls in it.
Then I think I left out some steps and did the shadow on the bottom layer so only part of the Happy has the shadow on the top. Duh....Then she also had another piece of cardstock and layered that onto a piece of color cardstock. Maybe need to try this again to....
PTI's Embellished Elegance in Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise and Hawaiian Shores.
Decided to finally try a Shaker card again. I have had problems in the past making them. I think it turned out pretty good, but not sure I did the back of the shaker correctly. After I posted this on STB I remembered that I had wanted to add three hearts on the outside so did that and re-took the picture.
Kristina made a circle card and I chose to just add the circle to a card.
PTI's Basic Backgrounds - Medallions in Berry Sorbet and Aqua Mist
I was such a dummy trying to make this card, that I had to watch her video about 4 times. I didn't listen close enough to what circles to use and it just wasn't turning out like hers because I didn't use the correct ones. Anyway, finally done and it think it turned out ok.
I'm getting a late start today cause Thursday mornings I go shopping for my 94 year old dad, then we go to I-Hop for breakfast, and then I take him for a drive. So I am a morning person as far as most things go including stamping. Usually, I come home from that and sit and read and maybe take a nap (yes) take a nap....
So I Skyped with Colleen and she was still creating so I got one card done also. Yeah for that.
Yana made her card with a word die so I thought I would try something different so chose the butterfly. SSS Friendship Butterflies.
I had two different pink banners, but it just wasn't thrilling me, then decided on the red. I think it is better.
My first card for the Clean & Simple Card Class which started today. I have been struggling today trying to get a card made. I don't have any background stamps that worked well for Jennifer's techniques. So I went on to Kristina's technique and had better success.
I used PTI's Background Basics, Medallions in Berry Sorbet and embossed with gold embossing powder.

PTI's Garden Grace and Butterfly Dreams in Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet, Soft Stone, Aqua Mist watercolored around butterflies. It feels great to be back in my craft room and skyping with Colleen.
Second card that I was able to make today. This one took a little more time. I have trouble with fruit and cutesy type stamp sets. I belong to Stamps of Life and a lot of her sets are cutesy with silly plays on words. That is why this is a NBUS set. I am entering in Darnell's 3rd NBUS challenge which you can access HERE NBUS
My birthday stash is low so I'm concentrating on them.
